When I was a kid, the majority of adults in my life were business owners. Both of my parents, my grandfathers, uncles and even close friends of the family were entrepreneurs. To me that seemed normal. It was what people did when they grew up. While most of them started from very humble beginnings and struggled to make ends meet, their commitment to their ventures was something I greatly admired.
The idea of working for someone else was foreign to me. Yet, when it was my time to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wasn’t sure. In fact, I didn’t even think about following in their entrepreneurial footsteps. Instead, I did the opposite: I decided to work for someone else.
Eventually, I found myself feeling unfulfilled, unsettled and extremely antsy. I was always successful at the jobs I held. I had a strong work ethic and I went above and beyond the call of duty. But at the same time, I felt like I wasn’t working for the right cause. Deep down, I knew I was meant to do more with my life and career. I was an employee, but there was an entrepreneur trapped inside screaming to get out.Featured Posts, Updates and tagged entrepreneur, entrepreneurship, featured. Bookmark the permalink.
